NAME
       aid - Query ID database and report results.

SYNOPSIS
       aid [OPTION]... PATTERN...

DESCRIPTION
       Query  ID  database and report results.	By default, output consists of
       multiple	lines, each line containing the	matched	identifier followed by
       the list	of file	names in which it occurs.

       -f, --file=FILE
	      file name	of ID database

       -i, --ignore-case
	      match PATTERN case insensitively

       -l, --literal
	      match PATTERN as a literal string

       -r, --regexp
	      match PATTERN as a regular expression

       -w, --word
	      match PATTERN as a delimited word

       -s, --substring
	      match PATTERN as a substring

	      Note:  If	PATTERN	contains extended regular expression metachar-
	      acters, it is interpreted	as  a  regular	expression  substring.
	      Otherwise, PATTERN is interpreted	as a literal word.

       -k, --key=STYLE
	      STYLE is one of `token', `pattern' or `none'

       -R, --result=STYLE
	      STYLE is one of `filenames', `grep', `edit' or `none'

       -S, --separator=STYLE
	      STYLE  is	one of `braces', `space' or `newline' and only applies
	      to file names when `--result=filenames'

	      The above	STYLE options control how query	results	are presented.
	      Defaults are --key=token --result=filenames --separator=space

       -F, --frequency=FREQ
	      find  tokens  that  occur	 FREQ times, where FREQ	is a range ex-
	      pressed as `N..M'.  If N is omitted, it defaults to 1, if	 M  is
	      omitted it defaults to MAX_USHRT

       -a, --ambiguous=LEN
	      find tokens whose	names are ambiguous for	LEN chars

       -x, --hex
	      only find	numbers	expressed as hexadecimal

       -d, --decimal
	      only find	numbers	expressed as decimal

       -o, --octal
	      only find	numbers	expressed as octal

	      By default, searches match numbers of any	radix.

       --help display this help	and exit

       --version
	      output version information and exit
